Combine all ingredients except cheese and cabbage in a large bowl and mix well. Form mixture into small, flat patties. Heat oil in skillet and cook patties in two separate batches on medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. (this step can be done ahead of time) Place one patty on each cabbage leaf and top with cheese. Fold and roll cabbage to enclose filling; pin together with a small skewer or toothpicks. Grill over an open fire until hot and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes.

Personal Notes:
This is a fresh and yummy alternative to hamburgers. I'm always taking the top bun off my burgers anyway, and with this savory preparation, you won't miss the bread at all.
Since there's usually just two at our house, we have the Cabbage Patch Melts for dinner, then save the rest of the patties to cook as another meal. They're great at breakfast when cooked like sausage patties...delicious paired with scrambled or over-medium eggs.
The origin of this recipe is Mary Jane's Farm, a delightful magazine in case you've never seen it.
